wednesday, two days ago. of likely republican voters in illinois, shows romney on top with 37. santorum at 31. gingrich, way down there at 14, and paul at 8. let me go to you, john howellman. is this a chance for greatness for santorum to win a big state? >> certainly a chance for greatness, chris. the state of illinois hasn't had a competitive primary in decades on the republican presidential side. it is very much a state divided between the north and south. you have republican, suburban republican counties around chicago and suburbs that are pretty moderate, should be romney country. then down state illinois, very conservative, much more like the south than like anything around chicago, and that's good hunting ground for santorum. gingrich has more or less abandoned the field, made a quick stop there today or yesterday, is now headed to camp out in louisiana. that 14% that gingrich has may erode considerably, may erode to santorum's advantage. it would be a huge win for santorum if he could pick up illinois after coming in so close in michigan and ohio, winning in the midwest. would b
this romney campaign, i can't recall a presidential candidate having this much trouble with his base, by that i mean the conservative and very conservative voters, which includes tea party and evangelicals. a candidate who has this much trouble with his base, even if he gets the nominee winning the general election, now you go back to, say, ronald reagan and gerald ford in 1976. there was the emerging conservative base in the republican party that reagan captured and almost won the nomination but lost and gerald ford lost the election. and jimmy carter in 19 -- what year was that? >> 1980. >> 1980. having so much trouble. his base actually ran against him. ted kennedy and the democratic national committee ran against their sitting president. that was a divisive primary, but carter got the nomination, obviously, but lost the general election. i see that one tiplet for predicting how decisive the primary comes out in the general. >> let's look first at this current primary and then some historical perspective. you indicated two of the races we'll be featuring during this discussion. i
would not only determine the course of the nation, they reveal the character of the man. >>> mitt romney is flip-flopping on this remark. >> planned parenthood, going to get rid of that. >>> and the governor of pennsylvania is advising women how to get through their state-mandated ultrasound. >> not make anybody watch, you have to close your eyes. >>> joan walsh is here with the latest. >>> and talk about a game change, ann coulter is throwing the mama grizzly under the bus. >> the conservative movement does have more of a problem. >> martin bashir is here with reaction. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks, thanks for watching. today was the kickoff of obama/biden 2012 campaign. vice president joe biden made the campaign's first official reelection appearance at a union hall in toledo, ohio. about 600 miles away, the president of the united states spoke to a community college in maryland. he addressed the hot-button issue of higher gas prices and called out the republicans for their fearmongering tactics. >> gas prices went up around this time last year. gas prices shot up in the

the three guys by name right now. >> because vice president joe biden did. >> mitt romney, rick santorum, newt gingrich. >> newton leroy gingrich. >> should newt gingrich get out of the race? in order to unify conservatives? >> i don't think newt's going to get out. >> he needles at rick santorum and divides the conservative vote. >> this is his last hoorah. he's having fun. >> this is personal between him and mitt romney. >> guess what, i made a lot of money. i've been very successful. i'm not going to apologize for that. >> oh, now he's talking about how rich he is. >> i've got money, so what? >> just like al gore, mitt romney's taking too much advice. >> at the end of the day republicans want to beat barack obama and we're going to rally behind him. it's going to start raining mitt it's raining mitt >>> martin short, ladies and gentlemen. if you think the republican clown car of republican presidential candidates had problems before today, well now the "a" team is coming after them. president obama and vice president joe biden delivered speeches at exactly the same time today. the pre
. chuck todd starts right now. we'll see you monday. >> mitt romney hits the airwaves. for more interviews designed to seal the deal with the unpersuaded conservatives. off camera the question being raised is, is it a candidate problem or actually a campaign problem? team obama's 17-minute campaign ad docuga flchlt da whatever you want to call it goes live as both the president and vice president hit the trail. should we be reading something more into the fact that they held their speeches at exactly the same time yesterday? and new details emerge about the soldier accused in that horrifying attack on afghan civilians as president karzai says it's time to keep all u.s. troops on base. an odd way to fight a war. friday, march 16, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. right to my first reads of the morning. the president hits the road today spending his entire day raising money. first in chicago where he'll hold two events before flying to atlanta for three fundraisers that are tailored to the african-american business and entertainment community including at tyler perry studios
. romney taking a 35% lead in a new state poll. a four-point advantage over santorum. romney is jetting this afternoon to sunny puerto rico where he'll have a near beer or a virgin colado to kick off the weekend. we can't wait to hear how mitt matches up. >> i was referred to by many in my state. >> however, we can guess that romney will not try to replicate the santorum sand storm over puerto rican state hood. mr. santorum is back peddling. >> english has to be learned a as language. this needs to be a bilingual country, not just a spanish speaking, right now it's overwhelming spanish speaking. at least he didn't say spanish is the language of the ghetto. he did try to sell a little sympathy with a mention of his immigrants roots. as the son of an italian immigrant myself, i continue to believe that english is the language of opportunity in america under statehood or the current status. in other words, kiss me, i'm an italian. it's newt gingrich who has had the luck of the irish by his own words finding the very pot of gold at the end of the rainbow like the little leprechun that he is
candidates cancelled, mitt romney has bailed on the idea, oregon republicans, surprise, had to call the whole thing off. where mitt romney is going instead of oregon is across the street from right here, actually, after rick santorum accused the fox news channel earlier this week of shilling, in his words, for mitt romney, mr. romney decided to make fox news awkward about that charge by suddenly agreeing to do a ton of interviews on fox news channel shows. mr. romney was on a show, yesterday mr. romney was on another fox news program hosted by megan kelly. that interview actually ended up being a little testy at times. >> you know, you're struggling, though, with folks that make less than $100,000. >> no, no, no. >> in ohio -- >> you don't win a million more votes than anyone else in this race by just appealing to high-income americans. >> no, no, no, no. point of fact here, i'm on megan kelly's side. if you are mitt romney, you do win races by just appealing to high-income americans. i mean, we've talked about this on the show. that is how he won ohio. ms. kelly was right about this, mitt ro
mi romney grabab12illion but thth churchh l lyy is on the attack! i will i have a bold prediction on rick santorum. also, does the president bullypulpit actually work? >> when my mom got cancer she wasn't a wealthy woman and it pretty much drained all of her resources. >> we have an electricfying debate on whether the company can swing the country. he lectrified. further more, the gross war on women continues. here is the pennsylvania government governor. >> make anybody watch? okay. you have to close your eyes. >> jesus. what the hell is he talking about? now attacking men. we will explain later. it's go time. >> independent programming. now, some of us have been begging the president to go on the attack and actually make his own case. i have been saying that for about three years. today, not bad. hey, he is counterattacking on the gas price issue, which he's maybe being heardurt on. so here is the president. >> every daytime prices start to go up especially in an election year politicians dust off their three-point plans for $2 gas. i
, that there is going to be an avalanche of negative ads as we've seen willard romney do against his republican opponents? >> well, of course there will be. that goes without saying what will happen later in the cycle. i think what you see happening right now is really a smart move in politics and that is to take advantage of a situation whenever you can. as your clips were illustrating there, romney and the others were beating up on the president when it appeared that things weren't getting better. unfortunately, for romney, that became the campaign message and he now has to sort of retool this thing right now and just as it was hard earlier for president obama to say things would have been worse if we hadn't done what i said, now romney's in a position of saying, well, things would be better if the president weren't there. but it's a very hard argument to make. i think you need to be feeling bad for willard and praying for him, reverend. >> yes, lee definitely do that. and i'm serious, melissa, let me say this. when he says it's difficult for them, the fact that the approval rating around the
-abortion services. romney weighing in on the choice of his chicago favorite foods. ribs chicago style hotdogs or deep dish pizza? he chose pizza. he's had too many problems already with dogs, especially the family setter who spent 12 hours riding on the roof of the family station wagon in 1983. the washington post reporting the dog on the car roof story still proves to be his critic's best friend. >> i'll be honest with you. the question i had like every other american said what the heck was he thinking putting a dog on the top of the roof. with that said, that is not the center core issue of this campaign. >> not center, but clearly for from peripheral. he 2008 chaired douglas gross noting, it's another one of those things about mitt that seems abnormal and raises questions about who he is and whether he's one of us. another romney advisor saying: >> his boss agreeing with that, as well. >> it's going to come down with a question of whether the president knows how to get more jobs in our economy. >> the labor reporting unemployment insurance dropping by 14,000, while newt gingrich came up wi
, this is a video that really draws an express comparison between barack obama and mitt romney, pointing out in the obama video that romney would have let detroit fail rather than go in and do the auto bailout. that is going to be a campaign theme. we see throughout the rest of this year, larry, as the obama administration has clearly decided that that auto bailout is something that they want to run on in the fall. >> all right. eamon javers, thank you very much for the movie premiere. next time i want some popcorn, real criticism, maybe an oscar performance. let's bring in our guests who will go do the criticism. we bring back keith boykin, clinton white house aide. jennifer ruben, the author of "the washington post" blog and my pal mark simone, radio talk show host. mark simone, i don't know if it was a bailout of detroit. bailing out unions? what's so good about that? >> you could go with the romney organized bankruptcy. that might have been a good way to go. but as far as this movie, let me put this very politely. it was shovel ready, if you know what i mean. >> shovel ready! >> it's unf
? "morning joe" starts right now. ♪ >>> mitt romney, rick santorum, and newt gingrich, these guys have a fundamentally different economic philosophy than we do. simply stated, we're about promoting the private sector, they're about protecting the privileged sector. we are for a fair shot and a fair shake. they're about no rules, no risks, and no accountability. >> i want to tell you, the economic theorys of gingrich, santorum and romney, they are bankrupt. if you give any one of these guys the keys to the white house, they will bankrupt the middle class again. >> well, he is kicking butt and taking names, isn't he? >> notice he was wearing a tie. >> well, unlike some other people here on the set of "morning joe." good morning, everyone, it is friday, finally it is friday. i don't know about you guys, i think i might have barely survived the week. it's march 16th. and with us onset as you can see, this is just a disgrace. >> mike, this isn't dress rehearsal, we're on, baby, we're live. >> this is the real deal? >> we had our usual -- >> i'll tell you what, i'll make everyone's life easi
-- at least on the republican candidates i'd. >> as an adviser to governor romney, i think he has done an excellent job. [laughter] now, in fact, he has laid out a comprehensive, by far the most comprehensive approach to foreign policy. perrylawn white paper, given a big speech on the subject -- very long white paper, given a big speech on the subject. as is the nature of most primary campaigns, it has not been the topic du jour. you do not get a chance to lay out your vision of foreign policy when you are debating contraception and all the other important topics they are debating. the better time to ask this question will be in the general election, because then i think there will be a discussion about american foreign policy. i think there has been room for criticism of the obama administration. i know that one of the major approaches of governor romney, for instance, is that for quite some time in various parts of the world, president obama has not been great with a number of our allies. he is now, by the way, scrambling to repair that image. is meeting with david cameron is intende
. the alabama and mississippi primaries were last night and the stakes for romney were high or as mitt would say just the right height. because if he won either state he could dispel doubt about his appeal to conservatives and i would have to start loving him which, of course, i have do as long as i have no other choice but i do because after a week of candidates forcing cheesy grits down their throats and y'alls out of their throats the deep south has spoken and for once the nation could understand what they were saying. >> rick santorum's surprise in the south. he wins the alabama and mississippi primaries. >> mitt romney walks out in third place in alabama and mississippi. >> it's very clear that none of the candidates can sew up in this nomination before tampa. >> it means a long, slow painful slog toç this nomination. >> stephen: long, slow and painful. thairchl you jesus. this is great. the democrats had the same situation when they won last time in 2008. now republicans get that hillary versus obama magic minus any women or black people or magic. [ laughter ] folks, i'll tell you, why r
if the nominee is romney, given that he loaned his campaign $40 million, i believe, in 2008, will he do something similar again? he is only given $50,000 if that area, this year. >>neil: so you think if it is not enough and he has been going through cash, fast, he would tap the substantial coffers again? >>guest: well, he is worth $200 million to $250 million which is not something we can relate to, but --. >>neil: aren't you modest. i have seen those sabato swiss bank accounts. >>guest: with the presidency on the line maybe you would be willing to part with that. >>neil: even $40 million or $50 million of his allotment when the presidency is on the line. >>guest: we did not know if president obama will be able to raise $1 billion and some think it could be closer to $750 million and they are worried whether they can get as much money from the super pac's as the republicans. if i guessed today i would guess obama would outspend the republican nominee but i get it is not an enormous difference and what matters whether you spend enough to get the message out, not whether you spend more but enough.
only got 30%. this 14% number is horrific. when you talk about softening the language, what the romney campaign did, they went back to their old ways in the ohio primary. they did an ad attacking santorum for supporting justice sotomayor to the supreme court, the first hispanic justice of the supreme court. i was stunned by that. i was like, you guys just don't get it. you're still making it worse. >> jeff zeleny, before we let you go, you're covering prthe primaries in alabama and mississippi, you more than likely will be in chicago to cover the illinois primary next week. from a personal standpoint as you cover these candidates on the campaign trail and file the deadlines which are now 24/7 in this internet age, just spend a moment telling these students and our c-span audience what it's like for you personally to cover this presidential campaign. >> well, this presidential campaign has been more interesting than some of us thought from the beginning. mitt romney has been running for president for about five or six years now, and republicans generally have a history of nominating the
.9 million and spent just $7.6 million. >> mitt romney a burn rate that was even worse, 289%. but he is in a contested primary and the president is not. next week all eyes will be on the new fund raising numbers that come out from the obama camp. we will have a look at what he had in february. >>> election year politics may be rehind a lot of recent talk about a world figure no longer with us. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge tells us who that is and why we are hearing about him now. >> reporter: though osama bin laden has been dead for ten months the al-qaeda leader is making a comeback on the campaign trail. aside from the new 17 minute campaign video that showcases among other things the president's decision to take out the terror leader, washington post columnist wrote on friday that he was given an exclusive look by a senior administration official at some of the documents recovered by navy seals at bin laden's compound. they emphasize he plans to target general petraeus and president obama. the plots were first reported in july last year and according to u.s.
